Yep, with the help of you tube, I have taught myself to knit. I can crochet, but haven't done that in quit some time. I don't even remember why I wanted to learn to knit, not sure what triggered that. I made this small baby hat in less than 30 mins.
Not sure what this is going to be yet. However, here I'm using two different yarns.
I have the knitting needles, and the knitting looms. I must say, those looms are easy peasy. I have a friend that still can't get the looms down pat, and I'm like DUHHHHH. Anyway, guess we all learn different. She can use the needles better.
Cool!! Good for you!!ReplyDelete
I used to want to learn to knit. Now I already have too many hobbies!ReplyDelete
Oh you clever girl! I tried teaching myself to knit. I was able to figure the basic stitch and to knit a scarf, but when I made a mistake, I couldn't figure out how to take it back and start over. I had to tear out the whole thing! I just gave up!ReplyDelete

I can crochet but am all thumbs with knitting. GOOD job, Tonya...I'm impressed that you did a complete knitted item in such a short time when just LEARNING. You have me totally beat with knitting!!!ReplyDelete
Way to go, and good job. I don't use the looms, they slow me down and I get frustrated and cranky. We don't want that!ReplyDelete

My friend is going to help me after Christmas. I know the basic stitches, but don't know how to actually make anything. She makes hats for premature babies.ReplyDelete
